A classic block style waterfall (also known as a ?horseshoe? falls) Nesowadnehunk Falls is a 7-foot drop of the West Branch of the Penobscot River. The falls are a well-known portage spot, often too dangerous for canoes and kayaks traveling down the river from the drop-in spot at Ripogenus Gorge. For whitewater rafters, however, traveling over the falls is often the highlight of a journey down the Penobscot River. Often, outfitters will do multiple runs over the falls if time and conditions permit them to.
The powerful 100-foot wide cascade drowns out the occasion logging trucks that are driving along Golden Rd, only yards away. Fly-fishing is also common below the falls, and a decent view of Mt. Katahdin can be seen looking downstream. Also, since the falls are controlled by Ripogenus Dam upstream, and water is released throughout each day, expect to see a powerful waterfall any time of the year.
